When the Political Loudmouth crew went to the Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco, the happiest people we met all day were these surrogate mothers. They are all carrying children for gay couples, and they’re so filled with joy about what they are doing that it was a blessing just to stand near them.

Our hats are off to you: Kelly, Stacie, and Heather!

This has been a very fun series of posters to work on. We’ve gotten so much feedback and engendered so much discussion that this has basically been the funnest thing we’ve done yet. So thanks to everyone who participated, shared, blogged, reblogged, cheered, and booed. This is the last poster, and since it’s the tail end of a long series, a little joke about buggery seemed in order. (Nyuk, nyuk). Go to download page.

We’ve just finished a new poster in our Legalize and Tax Dope series. In a daring move, we’ve made this cute little number 8.5 x 14, so you’ll need to print it out on legal size paper. Ooooooo.
Some notes for those who like to discuss: California stands to gain over $1,000,000,000 every year from a combination of excise and sales taxes. And there will actually be much greater savings than that in terms of the time and effort of the police and the court system which can be shunted away from cannabis enforcement and into things that matter more.
